To bad the 5vr isn't quite ready. Just got it home last Sunday. We store it indoors over the winter. Costs $135 from November till now. I feel that it's worth the money to store it were it won't see snow

At any rate, DW Volunteered to clean the camper

I got a bike rack for the hitch (on the back of the 5vr). I am looking foward to bringing all of our bikes.

We also need to buy a new twin Mattress. Any ideas? Most seem to be sold with a box spring, that we can't use.

I also need to get a new city water hook-up. The prior owner cross-threaded it once. Luckly if I am carfull, I can hook it up without a leak. I think I am pushing my luck, if I don't get it fixed soon. I Think I can install that myself.

Also the prior owner never had the hubs greased, so I am planning on taking it over to the local RV repair place and have him check it over. When I got the 5vr lifted last year, he did a quick check to make sure there was still grease in all four hubs. At the time, I couldn't afford to have him re-do it unless it was absolutly nessasary. (note: we just bought the 5vr late last summer).

So, I hope in a couple of weeks, we will hit the road.

Hows everyone else doing? Any simular lists?

Yep, I had similar Spring issues.
Now I just "crank" the shocks on the truck and slide in that big Lance!
Life is good.
